    Building on her commitment to empower parents and guardians with relevant, transparent information on their local schools, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released a resource guide to understanding state and local report cards required by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

    “This guide demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing parents with user-friendly tools and the information necessary to make informed decisions,” said Secretary DeVos. “Informed parents become empowered and engaged parents who are able to better advocate on behalf of their children.”

    On Nov. 8 and 9, the Department’s Office of Educational Technology hosted a Report Card Design Challenge. The event invited web content creators to design user-friendly, easy-to-understand report card landing pages and per-pupil expenditure pages. To learn more about the design challenge, click here.
